Oem of course. Why spend extra money on projector headlight when you know how to retrofit on the oem housings.

Edit: Get the projectors, so you can send me the headlights!

Those are really nice. If you have the extra cash... I say go for it. If not, these are always a cheap DIY job...

You know, I have always liked Halo light but only on the BMW 5 series. Where I live EVERYONE has halos. I see Halos on 85 Nissans. I think you would get more satisfaction on a DIY headlight setup.

thank you, someone agrees that halo's are overdone... well if you don't need to worry about $$$ then just use oem and modify it... like what i'm getting done... the guy who's doing mine said overall oem's are better quality compared to aftermarket... i don't think those projectors are good anyways... if you want projectors it's better to get oem's as well like s2k, tsx, tl to name a few.... mine will be s2k, hehehe....

good luck!!!
